Construction fence near new Music and Communication Building to come down

Olivia Exstrum, Campus Editor

The construction fence near the new Music and Communication Building is scheduled to be taken down 3 p.m. Friday, Deborah Burkhart, a Facilities Management project manager, announced in an email Thursday.

The building, which is still closed for construction, is located along the lakefront on the southeastern end of campus. Burkhart said once the fence is down, Facilities Management will continue maintenance on the road and sidewalks near the building. However, the road, sidewalks and walking path along the lakefront will be open to the public.

The area south of Pick-Staiger Concert Hall and between the building and the Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts, previously known as the Theatre and Interpretation Center, will also be converted into an outdoor area.
